Lovely 4 days, very relaxing even in the unusually extreme temperatures. House was a haven to get back to after trips out to the gorges, rivers, mountains and coast. We’ll be back again.

It is a beautiful and very cosy house, big enough to accommodate 6 people or even more! Gorgeous views from the upstairs lounge with a great seating area, corner for a TV and extensive DVD collection. Amazing, very well equipped kitchen with everything you might...More

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Loved the courtyard garden. However we have limited mobility and could not take advantage of the lovely sitting room on the third floor. A sofa on the ground floor would have been nice for us.

About the neighbourhood
You can visit the local hill-top Cathar castle, Chateau d'Aguilar, and even more interesting to visit are Queribus (just past Cucugnan) and Peyrepertuse. The fortified town of Carcassonne is close enough for a day out; visit Lagrasse on the way out/back (medieval town centre and Abbey). Fontfroide Abbey and the cities of Narbonne and Perpignan are worth a visit. The local gorges on the way to Cucugnan and especially the Gorges de Galamus (park and visit the Hermitage) north of St Paul de Fenouillet are spectacular. South towards Estagel are good views of the Pyrenees, especially in the winter. The highest peak is Pic de Canigou (the peak which can be seen from the top floor of the house on a clear day). You can drive to the Pyrenees in 2 hours to visit the fortified town of Villefranche d...
